How often to use

Basil is considered effective in a single dose of 300mg to 600mg of dried leaves daily for preventive therapy, and in 600mg to 1800mg in divided doses daily for curative therapy.

I usually look for products standardized to at least two percent ursolic acid. Basil can also be taken as tea. A cup of tulsi tea from an infused tea bag is an excellent way to try out this fascinating plant.
